Oh yeah I remember buying a Cadillac for my sister-in-law. Went across the bay to get it, on the way the guy who was driving me got a ticket for the car pool lane, just this one bridge was the only one in the bay that you needed three to be a "car pool". I get there and he wants another $50 for the battery and the car had no reverse! It was free so I took it. It overheated on the freeway on the way home, I left it there and had it towed, $90. It finally got to my shop at about 10pm and I paid the driver and went home. After I came to my senses I called the wrecking yard about a week later and told them to come get it. Yeah, what was I thinking!

My oldest bro...who lives in florida, and is definetly NOT GAY, has a euro green one that he has been massaging a 5.0 HO pony motor into.
He has the motor built and in and has got a friend who is going to wire it for him.
He is a world class collision specialist, back in the 80s he worked at a chevy dealer..Cox chevrolet where he was the man when it came to repairing corvette. He has had his own collision and body shop for years and recently retired and sold the business
SO... I can hardly wait to see a photo of it , knowing how fussy he is about paint and all (pretty fussy) it has to look sharp.
i would imagine the 5.0 would liven it up.
His had a puked out 4 cylinder also.
I forget what he said it has for wheels. They wont be stock...thats for sure

It's just a joke about miatas.
I actually love them. There's no better car for the track imo. Ever see the rear mount turbo ls1 miata on youtube? The guy has a ton of videos of him absolutely destroying lambo's, vettes', supras, and other high dollar cars. The thing is absolutely crazy fast.

That Nomad like all the others are pretty rough with rust. However, THAT would be the treasure for someone without a lot of money but with lot's of time. Putting that car in your garage and rebuilding it would be the way to go. The end result is a very valuable car, THAT is the car for me if I had a chance. Besides, I LOVE those cars so it's a win win.
